I have recently discovered a website for kids that I think is a lot of fun! It's called Soccer Rockets and the creator/director is Alex Krasovitsky, a former Olympian from the Ukraine (be sure and read his bio - it's impressive). Soccer Rockets teaches fitness to kids through fun activities and games that build coordination. Although his business is located in Queens and Brooklyn, New York, he has a blog with videos on his website that gives good fitness information and encouragement. Sharing information or asking questions about fitness for kids is encouraged on the blog. To make it easy for you, I've included one of the videos below. Hope you enjoy it - and if you do, be sure and let Alex know!
